There’s a podcast for every topic or hobby these days, from fitness and finance to fashion. Gastronomy is no exception – food podcasts are definitely on the menu.
Want to whet your audio appetite? Whether for a morning commute or during dinner, here are a few feasts for your ears — podcasts from around the world that focus on food and nutrition, from The Sporkful to Spilled Milk.
We have plenty of podcast crushes, but none of these are affiliated with Special K; we just love their work. Dig in!

4. First We Eat: This podcast describes itself as ‘a podcast for food nerds’. The hour-long program goes into the nitty-gritty technical details of food culture. Ever wanted to know how to dry-age meat? What actually is Soylent? What do people actually eat in space? Which foods are considered aphrodisiacs? These questions and more are answered in this eccentric podcast.
5. Fuhmentaboudit!: If you love fermenting, then this is the podcast for you — it features history, methods, recipes and interviews with other fermenters. Who knew that you could ferment rye bread into a nutritious beverage? It turns out that it’s possible to ferment… almost everything. This is not your average food podcast, and definitely one that will leave you with a much deeper knowledge of fermentation.
